I’m interested in exchanging information about the children/descendants of the George Washington Garner (1827-1874)/Mary Jane Cosby group. This family lived in Franklin Co., GA/Etowah Co., AL until the early deaths of George and Mary. Then the younger children were split up to live with various relatives. Their names were:
Thomas Pleasant Garner-(1849-1870)
Robert Cosby Garner (1853-1927)-settled in north Texas
George Johnston Garner (1860-1925)-settled in north Texas
Sidney B. Garner-(1861)
Henry Franklin Garner (1863-1940)-settled in “Indian Country” but visited in north Texas
Sarah Margaret Garner-(1865-)
David Barto Garner-(1867-1919)-settled in north Texas
Bethel Holly Garner-(1869-1956)-came to Texas and then went back to MS
It appears that those that came to Texas arrived between 1880-1900 and settled mostly in Rockwall, Royse City, and Sanger. Their descendants spread out to at least the Denton and Dallas area.
I’d love to share information and photos.
